2017 Charitable Giving Program | Charity Request for Proposal
The Real Estate Alliance for Charity (REACH) is currently accepting submissions from local non-profit organizations to be considered for the REACH Charitable Giving Program.
REACH will add one (1) charitable organization to our roster in 2017. The organization will be selected for a three year grant period. REACH donates up to $12,500 annually to each charity on our roster. At any given time we support 1-3 charities.
REACH strives to support the community in which we live by distributing funds to smaller organizations that have a direct impact on charities that are often over looked by larger foundations and charitable giving programs. REACH will distribute funds to local non-profit organizations whose emphasis to benefit children in Wisconsin.
Currently REACH supports College Possible, Playworks Wisconsin and Safe Babies Healthy Families. Uniquely these charities directly impact the communities in which they serve, while advancing the welfare of children.
As the charitable arm of the Commercial Real Estate industry, REACH encourages industry professionals to recommend a charity that fits our mission.
The mission of the Real Estate Alliance for Charity (REACH) is to improve the lives of those in need by contributing to worthy endeavors, either financially or through in-kind donations, with special emphasis on causes that benefit children within Wisconsin.
